YouTube-ripping site finally goes dark following court-ordered ban

A popular YouTube-ripping site has finally been blocked on copyright infringement grounds following a German court-ordered ban. 

The takedown notice for youtube-dl was filed against German web hosting provider Uberspace in March and officially enforced on July 27, TorrentFreak reported. Despite GitHub being the platform hosting the open-source YouTube downloader, Uberspace was held legally liable because it linked to the developer platform.
